And if you're feeling ambition, I can't think of a more pleasant drive than a late-August trek through Utah and into Colorado for Uncle Willie's stop at Red Rocks.

"Jimmy Carter would be good, but I don't think he would do it. I've been supporting Dennis Kucinich since he came out against the war. But his chances...who knows?
